In a speech to the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, Gov. Christie joked about his terrible sense of direction.
"I was on the phone with someone this morning and he said to me, 'Where is this speech you're giving in Philadelphia?' and I said, 'I have absolutely no idea. I know it's in Philadelphia, and when the car stops and when I see a state trooper standing on the sidewalk, I'll know we're close.' "
For the record, the event took place at 200 S. Broad St.
After getting some laughs, Christie continued, apparently off-script.
"I have among the worst senses of direction, I think it's conservative to say, in New Jersey and probably in America," Christie said. "This is how bad my sense of direction is - you know when you get to that corner and you don't know which way you're going, if you should go right or left, and your instinct tells you to go right? So I say, well, I must be wrong, so I'm going to go left. Then I start second-guessing whether the left is the incorrect way to go because that's also my instinct. That's about where I am."
